Description: The "Sternbrau" is located right in the middle of the Old City of Salzburg, next to the world-famous Getreidegasse and Mozart's birthplace. Since 1542, the "Sternbrau" step by step has become the biggest and most popular traditional beer inn of Salzburg. Since October of 2014, the whole restaurant complex is fully renovated and now offers an outstanding variety of eleven halls and parlours with a unique mixture of tradition and modernity. We serve typical Austrian cuisine with a modern twist, our home-brewed unfiltered beer and our own Austrian red and white wine.

“Authenticity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

A wonderful little place, serving authentic Austrian fare, that is homely and unpretentious. It is comforting to know that we were in the company of the locals, which was good enough for us. A few couples found our Australian accent an oddity. The wait staff were friendly and helpful. Well worth the visit.

“Salzburg Jan '13”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Very touristic restaurant, divided into 4 rooms. We do not know why tourists are mainly located in two specific rooms why locals in other room. Food is nothing special, beers are good.

“Unfriendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We found the staff to be extremely rude and unfriendly. The food was good but the fact that the staff were extremely surly just put a damper on the evening. If it wasn't for my custom, you wouldn't have a business or employment!

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We ordered the typical faire; schnitzel, sausages, etc. The food was nothing outstanding and the service was not good. Our waiter was slow and unapologetic. The atmosphere was nothing special. We were disappointed. It's certainly no Hofbrau!

“Sternbrau - Not Great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The saving grace of this place was that our waitress was nice and attentive. I had the beef goulash, and the meat wasn't tender at all. They were also out of their house brew beer, but whatever. In any case, this is a tourist trap. Having just come from Munich, and eaten at other beerhalls, I was very unimpressed with this place. I would avoid it if possible.
